Netflix Nabs Production IG Original Anime 'Perfect Bones'
Perfect Bones will be a 12 episode series directed by Kazuto Nakazawa (director of the anime sequence in Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill). It will be a science-fiction series in which scientists have tried to create the perfect human in order to bring peace to the universe. The 'New Humans'' they have created are sent to complete their training, only to be kidnapped by a nefarious organisation determined to use their powers for less noble purposes.
This seems like a really good place for Netflix to start getting into anime more. Sci-fi is definitely a genre that is popular with western anime fans, many of whom feel that their needs are often under served by much of Japan's current animation output. Production IG are an excellent studio too, so we expect great things. Netflix's big pockets should ensure decent production values, and this will likely come dubbed in numerous languages. This is certainly an exciting new era for anime fans! Or those anime fans with an active Netflix subscription at least..
No release date has been announced at this time.
